2001-08-18, Serge Pod: New Generation of Russian Fighter Aircraft to Be on The Job in 2010 The first experimental fighter aircraft of a new generation will be created and flight- tested in 2005-2006 and will be adopted for service in 2010, General of the Army Anatoliy Kornukov, the air force commander-in-chief, told a news conference at the MAKS-2001 airshow on Thursday [16 August]. He said the tactical and technical assignment for the aircraft has been worked out and endorsed, and the industry started developing the technological outlook of the aircraft. It has not yet been defined but most probably it will combine the best of what has been achieved under programmes for S-37 aircraft of the Sukhoy design bureau and a multifunctional fighter aircraft of the MiG corporation, the air force commander-in-chief said. Kornukov believes the fighter aircraft of the fifth generation will be created by all Russian aircraft construction design bureaus with the leading role of the Sukhoy bureau. This is explained by the fact that the Sukhoy…

2001-09-06, Serge Pod: Armed Helicopter Market - New Rotary Realities? September 2001 The award of the long-running Australian Air 87 competition to the Eurocopter Tiger opens a number of avenues for both the winning company and the armed helicopter market. It is not be going too far to suggest that there is now a very different market for this type of product compared with even five years ago, let alone a decade. At A$1.3-billion ($670-million) for 22 Tigers, the deal looks good for both sides. The UPC one gets from this figure looks very competitive – looking at a variety of armed helicopter contracts over the past five years, it seems on a like-for-like basis to be slightly less than half the price for a Longbow Apache. But the figures suggest that Eurocopter has not had to enter a (self) cut-throat deal to win the first export customer. Instead, all the signs are that even with licensed assembly in Queensland, it will make money nicely. At the same time, coming merely scant days after the Loi de Programmation 2003-08, an award…

2001-09-05, Serge Pod: Hypersonic scramjet projectile flies 30 August 2001 The first-ever successful free flight of a hypersonic projectile powered by a supersonic combustion ramjet (scramjet) engine burning hydrocarbon fuel took place last month, according to the US' Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA). The projectile is a four-inch diameter, 20-percent scale model of a conceptual missile. On July 26, GASL Inc fired the scramjet projectile out of a large gun at the US Air Force's Arnold Engineering Development Centre in Tennessee. The test is an important step towards the realisation of flight at hypersonic speeds. The test was the second of two successful launches, the first occurring on June 20. Together, these tests demonstrate that scramjet engines will provide enough thrust to power a free-flying vehicle. The tests used Arnold's two-stage light gas gun to accelerate the projectile to the flight condition through a 130-foot long gun barrel. The projectile experienced peak acceleration of approximately 10,000 Gs,…

2001-09-05, Serge Pod: Second test fire Of RD-191 engine 4 September 2001 Energomash successfully completed the second fire test of the RD-191 engine last week The test duration was 10 seconds. The engine is being developed for use in the first stage of the Angara family of launch vehicles (LV) including the Baikal reusable stage booster. RD-191 is a Liquid Propellant Rocket Engine consuming LOX and kerosene with after-burning of oxidising gas-generator gas in the main combustion chamber. The engine has been designed based on the engines RD-170 and RD-171developed for the Energia and Zenit LVs respectively. Unlike the four-chamber RD-170 and RD-171, the RD-191 is a single chamber engine. The engine is equipped with a new turbo-pump of less power, one gas generator and a new system of propellant consumption rate control. Regulation of the thrust vector is provided through deflection of the main combustion chamber in two planes. In March 1999 the engine mockup was delivered to the Khrunichev Space Centre for integration of the…

2001-09-05, Serge Pod: Rosoboronexport looks at Russian opportunities in world markets 4 September 2001 At the Moscow international air and space show in Zhukovsky Andrei Belyaninov, general director of the state company Rosoboronexport, Russia's largest arms exporter, said that the company was now negotiating export contracts worth $6.5 billion. So far this year Rosoboronexport had received $2.8 billion in export revenues against the 2001 target of $3.2 billion. The company's existing contract portfolio now stands at $13.1 billion. Rosoboronexport says its estimates show that before 2010 the annual global market demand for combat planes will stand at 150 to 200 aircraft, training planes at 80 to 90 and military transport planes at 40. Annual global market for helicopters is estimated at 400 to 500. Rosoboronexport is confident Russian enterprises are capable of winning a considerable share of this market. Belyaninov pointed to a certain "geographic bias" in the export of Russian military hardware with main buyers being India,…

2001-08-18, Serge Pod: Sukhoi Features Large Choice of Aircraft at MAKS-2001 At MAKS-2001 Air Shows, the Sukhoi Corporation has for the first time presented a comprehensive exhibit, which in addition to its in-house projects, featured the products of the corporation`s 25 affiliated plants such Saturn, the Novosibirsk aero-industrial association and a similar association in Komsomolsk-on-Amur . According to Sukhoi`s DG Mikhail Pogosyan, the corporation has presented an entirely different concept: ``a single development concept incorporating modernization and post-sale support of aircraft, creation of a fifth-generation aviation complex and access to the market of civil aviation.`` ``Today is a day of the entire Sukhoi constellation,``` Air Force Commander Army General Anatoly Kornukov declared at a press conference to mark the presentation of the Sukhoi exhibit at the MAKS-2001 air show. He maintains that when Russia`s Air Force commissioned SU-27 and SU-30 aircraft of various modifications, this was a landmark event in the…

2001-08-18, Serge Pod: Volga Dnepr, Engine Makers Clench Deal to Save IL-76 MAKS-2001 - Zhukovsky Russia`s top cargo airline Volga Dnepr, Perm Engines and JSC Aviadvigatel signed today a memorandum of intentions to equip Ilyushin IL-76 cargo aircraft with PS-90A-76 engines, a spokesman for the airline reported to AVIA.RU. Pursuant to the memorandum, one of the two Volga Dnepr`s Ilyushin IL-76s will be soon fitted with new PS-90A-76 engines, which virtually meet the new ICAO noise and emission regulations. ``The deal is deemed as the first practical step of the Russian cargo airline community towards saving of Ilyushin IL-76 plane`` Volga Dnepr`s DG Aleksey Isaiykin pointed out. Introduction of the new stricter ICAO noise and emission regulations effective from April 2002 will ban IL-76 flights in Europe. The project for saving IL-76 aircraft was initiated early this year by UK`s Air Cargo News with a proactive support of Volga Dnepr. Ilyushin IL-76 is a unique cargo plane equipped with a rear-loading ramp, which avoids the need…

2001-08-18, Serge Pod: India Drops Hawks to Snap Up Migs India`s reneging on its Hawk deal rocked the world arms market as Russia snatched the most lucrative contract from the British, dramatically changing the ranking of the world`s aircraft makers. It is now safe to say that the scale on one of the world`s most promising arms market that of Asia - is tipping in Russia`s favor. India`s decision to buy MiG-ATs astounded BA Systems, which for two years had been negotiating a contract for Hawk 100 training planes to be supplied to that country. India had agreed to buy 66 such planes from Britain for a total sum of about $ 1.6 billion. In August 2000, India`s then Defense Minister George Fernandes told parliament that a decision on the purchase would be taken within a few weeks. Snatching away a contract from a potential supplier is regarded as normal practice on the world arms market, where suppliers` behavior is anything but gentlemanly. One need only recall how the Americans did Russia out of the contract to sell Greece S-300…

2001-08-17, Serge Pod: Krasnoyarsk to Host Its First Air Show East Siberian city of Krasnoyarsk this year will host Siberia`s first-ever aerospace show from 1-4 December 2001. This announcement was made on Wednesday [15 August] at the international aerospace show in Zhukovskiy by KrasAir [Krasnoyarsk air] general director Boris Abramovich. He said the Siberian show of the latest achievements in the field of Russian and foreign aviation and space equipment expects to put on view exhibits adapted for operation in Siberia`s harsh climate with its low temperatures and in areas distant from the industrially developed regions. The idea of the Siberian aerospace show has been approved by the Russian president`s representative in the Siberian Federal District and the administration of Krasnoyarsk Territory. According to expert estimates, between 200 and 300 foreign and domestic companies will take part in the show. Itar-tass AVIA.RU - Информационное агентство "Российская авиация и космонавтика"

2001-08-17, Serge Pod: Russia Challenges Pretenders to Role of India`s Military Supplier Russia is pushing its way back into the competition with Britain, France and Israel to offer high-technology defence equipment to its long-time military ally, India, reports AFP. A flurry of high-level visits has brought Russia back into the reckoning after India looked to be favouring technologically superior Western armament firms. Moscow`s most recent achievement has been to rekindle New Delhi`s interest in the Russian version of the Advanced Jet Trainers AJT required by the Indian Air Force. The 1.66-billion-dollar contract seemed to have been sealed by British Aerospace with its ``Hawk`` AJTs being favoured above the French Alphajet and Russian MiG-AT. But now the Russians would appear to be back in the running. ``We accepted the MiG-AT as an option after they made a presentation during Defence Minister Jaswant Singh`s visit to Moscow in June,`` an Indian defence ministry spokesman said. ``The deal is, however, not yet clinched and is…

2001-08-16, Serge Pod: SA Shows Right Stuff above Moscow SA`s Armscor will launch an unusual bid for international aerospace business when an SA Air Force Mirage F-1 is exhibited and flown at the annual Moscow air show starting next week. The aircraft, piloted by Maj Johannes Joubert, made its first test flight at the Zhukovsky military aerodrome, outside Moscow, last Thursday. Earlier, the plane had been disassembled and transported to Moscow from SA by a Russian transport aircraft. Russian officials said Thursday`s flight marked the first time a foreign-made military aircraft had ever taken off at Zhukovsky. The air show display of the SA aircraft, which has been modified to use Russian-made engines, is also a first for a foreign aircraft. Armscor and its Russian counterpart, the government-owned arms export agency Rosoboronexport, have already agreed to work together to market modifications of the French-built Mirage F-1, using SA know-how, western avionics, and the Klimov SMR-95 engine. The engine was originally supplied to…

2001-08-16, Serge Pod: Russia Aircraft Makers Seek Support A primary target for U.S. spy satellites during the Cold War, this air base near Moscow attracted thousands of spectators who came to see Russia`s top-of-the-line jets at the Moscow International Air Show, which opened Tuesday. President Vladimir Putin was the star guest, making a dramatic arrival in a helicopter at the base just 15 miles southeast of Moscow. ``Economic difficulties have taken their toll on the aviation industry, but despite that, our aircraft makers have found their niche in the global market,`` Putin said. He walked briskly past a line of wide-bodied Tupolev airliners, sleek fighter jets and helicopter gunships, peering into their cockpits and listening to their designers` pleas for state support. By the end of Putin`s three-hour inspection, the presidential entourage had grown into a colorful mixture of officials, journalists, curious children and security service snipers armed to the teeth. Most Russian aircraft makers found themselves struggling for…

2001-08-16, Serge Pod: Putin Gets Air Show Off the Ground President Vladimir Putin swooped down on Zhukovsky in a helicopter Tuesday to open the Moscow Air Show with a brief speech peppered with praise for the Russian aviation industry. ``The difficulties of the past years in the economy could not help but influence the aviation industry,`` Putin said. ``At the same time, aircraft manufacturing companies - and these are people we remain proud of - have found a niche of their own in the international market.`` Bodyguards then beat a path through the crowds for Putin to make a three-hour tour of the show, the largest ever in its 10-year history. Russian aviation, which stagnated through much of the 1990s, got a shot in the arm this year with the signing of multibillion-dollar agreements with Boeing Co. of the United States and Airbus maker EADS of Europe. Military jet sales to other countries are also on the rise. Putin expressed great interest in the exhibits put on by Boeing and EADS. He then examined the wares of Russian fighter…

2001-08-16, Serge Pod: Mi-8 Helicopter Crash A helicopter carrying paratroopers crashed in a gorge in southern Chechnya on Tuesday killing at least three people, officials said. The Mi-8 helicopter crashed about 15 kilometers south of the mountain village of Tuz-Kharoi, some 2,000 meters above sea level, according to border guards spokesman Viktor Nosatov. The paratroopers were on their way to replace another group of paratroopers stationed there. Meanwhile, paratrooper commander Georgy Shpak denied reports that Chechen rebels had recaptured the town of Benoi-Yurt in the Vedeno district, also in the region`s mountainous south. Residents who fled the region said Monday that rebels held control of a key road running through the area. AP AVIA.RU - Информационное агентство "Российская авиация и космонавтика"

2001-08-12, Serge Pod: Atlant-Soyuz Eyes Buying Five PS-90A Engines Atlant-Soyuz is looking to buy at least five PS-90A engines from Perm Engines at the forthcoming MAKS-2001 Air Show in Zhukovsky, Stanislav Leychenko, DG reported. The carrier contemplates installing the four engines on its first IL-96-400 cargo plane refurbished at a production line in Voronezh. The remaining engine will be used as a back-up. According to Leychenko, Atlant-Soyuz and Perm Engines had already agreed and signed off on the conditions of the deal, aiming to sign the accord on August 15 or August 17 during the Air Show. The first two engines will be delivered straight after signing of the deal, with the others to follow soon. By estimate, refurbishment of IL-96T to IL-96-400 version will take 6-7 months. Ilyushin IL-96-400 boasts practically the same performance as IL-96T but costs twice less. IL-96-400`s price tag is 40 mln US dollars apiece, compared to 40 mln US dollars per IL-96T. AVIA.RU

2001-08-12, Serge Pod: India Prefers MiG-AT to Hawk A ?1bn deal between India and BAe Systems to buy 66 Hawk jets appeared in deep trouble last night, after reports suggested India had ``regrettably`` decided to buy a cheaper Russian aircraft. India said on Thursday it had lost 71 military aircraft in accidents over the last three years and would buy new trainer planes and simulators to cut down the casualty rate. Junior Minister of Defense U.V. Krishnam Raju told parliament the 71 lost air force aircraft included 10 helicopters. He said that of the 59 lost fighter planes, 35 were Russian-made MiG-21s. The government`s statement came amid fresh doubts over a US$1.42 billion proposed deal to buy 66 trainer planes from Britain. Media reports in India and Britain said long-running negotiations between BAe Systems PLc and the Indian defense ministry for supply of Hawk trainer jets had run into fresh trouble due to a dispute over price. According to sources in the Indian defense ministry, the government had virtually ruled out…

2001-08-12, Serge Pod: MiG in Austrian Tender In a move that could give MiG Corp. a chance to win a multimillion-dollar defense contract, the Austrian Finance Ministry has requested that the country`s Defense Ministry revise the conditions of a tender for the purchase of new fighter planes, Jane`s Defense Weekly reported. The Finance Ministry said the Defense Ministry will also have to explain why it turned down the comparatively cheap Russian fighters in February. Austria had planned to spend some $1.6 billion on 30 new fighters while the CMT-2 version of the MiG-29 could be purchased for between $30 and $35 million. The tender has yet to be announced, but the present conditions are seen as favoring Sweden`s Grippen fighter, according to Vedomosti. MiG Corp. is back in the running primarily because the Austrian Finance Ministry wants to use up to 20 percent of the value of the contract as payment for debt, the maximum permitted under European Union regulations, Vedomosti cited a government source as saying. As part of the…

2001-08-12, Serge Pod: Russia Looks to Asia to Finance Fighter Russia may pool resources with China or India to build a costly new-generation fighter intended to re-equip its air force and secure a competitive edge in the global market against prospective U.S. and European designs, a top Cabinet official said Thursday. China and India have become the top customers for Russia`s beleaguered aircraft makers, who have received almost no orders from their own government in the decade since the Soviet collapse. Both countries have recently bought large batches of Sukhoi fighter planes, and purchased licenses to manufacture more. But Russian Aerospace Agency director Yury Koptev warned that Russia risks being edged away from lucrative export markets unless it urgently starts work on a new fighter. Russia is currently the world's fourth largest arms exporter, behind the United States, Britain and France, and fighter jets have been its top export item. ``Such planes as the Su-27 and the MiG-29 and their modifications can stay competitive…

2001-08-12, Serge Pod: Ka-26 Destroyed by Fire in Accident in Siberia A helicopter was consumed by fire in Kashtan, Krasnoyarsk territory, Siberia as a result of an accident. The Ka-26 helicopter belonging to a Transsibneft oil-pumping facility hit a fuel tank with its rotor during takeoff at about 4:40 p.m. Moscow time on Thursday, Interfax was told at the territorial interior department on Friday. Preliminary reports attribute the steep bank of the helicopter to a strong headwind. The fuel from the damaged tank started burning and a fire broke out at the oil facility. The 39-year-old pilot was hospitalized with severe burns. Interfax AVIA.RU - Информационное агентство "Российская авиация и космонавтика"

2001-08-12, Serge Pod: Upgraded Su-35 on Display at MAKS In the opinion of Vladimir Babak, Chief Designer, Sukhoi Design Bureau, the current fleet of Su-35 Scorpion strike fighters needs an urgent upgrade to improve the accuracy of bombing by three to four times. Babak has come to that conclusion, based on the experience of using Su-25 strike fighters against Chechen guirillas in the North Caucuses. According to Babak, an upgraded example of Su-25 is in the final assembly at a production line in Kubinka. The modernized aircraft will be featured at Sukhoi`s stand during the MAKS 2001 Air Show in Zhukovsky. The plane`s fighting capabilities reportedly increased fivefold over the non-modernized version.
